The Uprooted Flower Truck is a New York City-based mobile florist that makes access to high-quality floral arrangements an on-demand service. The truck was founded on the idea that by not having a permanent location, the business was avoiding the daunting reality of high New York City rents in the interest of passing on those savings to consumers.

Meanwhile, Tell a Story is a roaming bookstore that takes its impressive library with it on the road. The vibrant blue and white vehicle is a tourism project in Portugal that aims to make Portuguese literature more accessible to tourists.
